Artwork Description

The Bloodbellied Glimmerwing is usually found in the rainforests of Faerie, hunting for insects, slugs, fruits and vegetation. She is a gentle creature to all besides, and a favorite playmate of other fairy creatures.

The Bloodbellied Glimmerwing is aptly named. Her shimmery transparent green-and-feathered wings contrast beautifully with her blood-red underbelly, throat, toes, and tail-tip. Her dorsal regions and muzzle shine with iridescent green scales, and the rest of her body is a rich leathery antique bronze color. Her serene green gaze shows intelligence and a hint of playfulness.

This sculpture is a OOAK (one of a kind) piece, created entirely by the hands, heart, and imagination of the artist. (No molds were used or made.) She is made from high quality PuppenFimo polymer clay over a strong armature. (The toes/feet are made from an even more flexible blend for additional strength, and the clay is baked to manufacturer specifications.) I painted her with several thin layers of artist acrylics and Pearl Ex powders, then sealed her with a matte varnish. Her wings are fabric, wire, and feathers, and are removable for safe shipping. Three real seashells adorn her head, two in the form of tiny horns. She has anatomically realistic reptilian ear-holes (with a recessed tympanic membrane).

She measures about 10 inches (25 cm) long including wings, and her wingspan is about 9 inches (23 cm) across. She is about 5 inches (13 cm) tall to the top of her head, and up to 7 inches (18 cm) tall to the tips of her wings (depending on how they are positioned).

Bloodbellied Glimmerwing is available.

She's very appealing! I like the eye, and the small horns, and the delicate wings...

Art at its best.
